Yesterday I was diagnosed with Bechet's. I was no way expecting this. I don't totally understand though. I don't really get ulcers in my mouth and I thought that was a big symptom. I had a lesion on my brainstem which has caused me hell.The neuro said the area of inflammation was consistent with bechet's. I have lost alot of teeth due to abcesses. My gums swell up something awful, my joints swell up and hurt. Fatigue is an understatement, I feel knocked out at times. But again, even though my eyes get irritated and sore and gritty, they dont get like some of the pictures I have seen of people with bechet's. I had a pinprick test and 48 hours on its red and bruised looking, but not a massive lump. I do get genital sores but I thought that was herpes. Ok, I am sorry for appearing stupid but I am very confused about the whole thing. They have started me on conchicine...(I think thats what they call it)...Any advice...thanks .
